Adults & Seniors

We offer a variety of programs to protect, encourage independence and advocate for frail and vulnerable adults in Michigan. Our programs can assist you with independent living (home help), adult foster care and homes for the aged, adult protective services and support for those dealing with HIV/AIDS.

Adults and Seniors Program

Adult Community Placement

If you or your loved ones can no longer live independently and need licensed adult care, you may be eligible for assistance.

Adult Protective Services

Adult Protective Services investigators protect vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect and exploitation by coordinating with mental health, public health, law enforcement, the probate courts, the aging network, community groups and the general public.
